JC de Vera with 'Moon of Desire' leading lady Meg Imperial. ABS-CBN
MANILA - Actor JC de Vera is so busy with his career that he barely has time anything else -- not even for matters of the heart.
Speaking with ABS-CBN's Mario Dumaual, the 28-year-old actor said that he is not fit to commit to a relationship for now due to his hectic work schedule.
"Maraming trabaho talaga. Hindi ako fit talaga mapunta sa situation na 'yun (relationship) dahil everyday 'yung taping eh, mahirap," he said.
But the actor is not complaining. De Vera currently stars in ABS-CBN's "The Legal Wife," and will join the cast of the upcoming series "Moon of Desire" and the romance movie "So It's You."
De Vera said he is thankful for the opportunities given to him and sees his current and upcoming roles as a chance to learn and improve his acting skills.
"Blessed lang. Very grateful sa lahat ng nangyayari right now. Medyo nakakapagod pero fulfilling siya. Masarap na pagod," he said.
"Magandang experience lang din for me to try other roles na hindi ko pa nasusubukan like 'yung sensual show," he said, referring to "Moon of Desire." "Sabi nga nila medyo offbeat for me, pero para sa akin, magandang experience iyon."
On co-stars Ellen, Meg
Asked how it is like working with co-star Ellen Adarna on the set of "Moon of Desire," de Vera said the motel heiress can be "a little crazy" sometimes, calling her a "fun-loving creature."
"Aside from having a pretty face and a sexy body, fun-loving person [si Ellen]. Medyo crazy pero fun to be with. Hindi siya 'yung nakakairita kasama," he said.
In contrast, De Vera labeled leading lady Meg Imperial as the "silent type."
"More on work lang siya so pag nagkikita kami pareho kaming pagod. So wala kaming chance na makapagbond ng matagal talaga," he said.
"Moon of Desire" is set to premiere on March 31 as part of ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold line-up, while "The Legal Wife" airs on primetime after "Ikaw Lamang."
